debbie, Walkden. Manchester

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I bought two of these computers at the same time, one for my 10yr old daughter and the other for my 15 yr old son.
I found them both to be very easy to set up . I even managed to purchase and install (myself) wireless adapters in both pc's.
They are both of a neat size and they look rather smart
Bad points:
As yet, Ive not found any .. some times they run a little slow but that maybe coz Ive got 4 pc's and 2 x-box lives and some time a lap top all running from the same wireless modem,

Paul, Norfolk

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Resonable price as a starting point.
Good looking case.
Seems well built.
Bad points:
Luckily I am a PC engineer so can fathom out how to upgrade hardware and software. PC novices would be a bit lost and wondering why their 1GB of RAM wasn't too good, not realising 256mb of it was being pinched by the on board graphics card.

No WiFi connectivity until I added a USB WiFi dongle.

Now upgraded it to 4GB of RAM plus a seperate Graphics card and the PC works better.

No Vista CD plus no instructions on how to make a recovery disk..Novices wouldn't even think about it. Poor!

One other bad point is the button for the DVD tray operation is poorly placed.
